Hello all! I am not sure if this is where I should be posting this or not, but I felt like this should be in its own topic, instead of just residing in my grow journal. Please move it to the necessary category if needed!
I am going to be doing a small experiment on the effects of time to trichomes after cutting. I have read that trichomes continue to develop after cutting, but just how much? How long does the degradation of THC occur?
Obviously I am just a Joe Schmoe with no crazy equipment, just a guy with questions. I am aware a ‘scientific’ approach would call for a much larger test group than just one bud from one plant, but I can only do so much lol. I plan on taking a few photos with my USB Microscope each day to gauge how fast and for how long trichomes continue to change.
Here is Day 1 of the experiment. I just cut off the cola of my plant, and took a small piece of bud from it as the test piece.
